    Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility, and failure means exile to the dangerously polluted Colonies. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name....

    Would you try another book from Margaret Atwood and/or Claire Danes?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Margaret Atwood’s story?

    Blah blah blah it just seemed to go on and on about the same points over and over. I love to read as well as listen to books, but this one was so annoying with the constant repetitive description...it was too much. I wanted to just give up and quit but kept thinking it would get better....sadly, it didn't. This is the first time I have been compelled to write a book review...but feel strongly that maybe I can save some other poor soul from wasting all those hours I did when I could have been listening to a GREAT book instead of this dud!
